Can we get back to Sandwich talk? I'm starting to find politics interesting.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Back to the pattern of: Trump and Carson are insane and the other fifty Republican nominees are just a finely graded spectrum of run of the mill conservatives from Old Fart to Actual Dinosaur, Clinton refuses to be pinned down on anything because she's hoping she can win by default and Sanders is too old/white/communist/old/double down/not enuff campaign emones/socialist to win?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Much to the surprise of those who forgot he was running or never knew it in the first place, Bobby Jindal has dropped out of the race.

Probably not a Goat, either.

Sadly I don't have the time to watch this right now before work, but I've been hearing this is pretty solid.

Will be watching it when I get home tonight.

All seriousness, has there been a game which mentions and/or features gun control in some way? Like a GTA style game where once you get busted and start building a record you're forced to go through back channels to acquire guns? The only example I can think of was making fun of gun control in Hitman: Absolution because that game's America was fueled by the Bush Jr. administration.

Holy **** I just found out that Bernie Sanders' brother Larry is a politician here in the Uk and ran as the Green party candidate for the Oxford West and Abingdon constituency in the last election. That's one district over from where I live.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I don't think so. It sounds slightly interesting but not fun.

Maybe an indie will make it. :U

On second thought, it has to be like Papers, Please and you decide who gets to have what guns and then watch the world burn.

That sounds a lot better!

But it may also still be boring, as you'd probably never sell a gun to a murderer or crazy person in your entire career statistically speaking.

...unless your gun store happened to have a reputation for categorizing bazookas as self defense weapons.

Well I guess the video game would have to take some liberties. You can't go for total realism.
